Abstract

This chapter documents the author’s reflections on travel, research, and purpose over 15 years of travelling to African countries to conduct research; in particular, Uganda. McBrien considers notions of privilege, mindful research and ethics as a North American White woman researcher in the field, offering lessons she has learned to those who may be new to this kind of work. Although some of her insights result from gendered perspectives, her observations result more from working primarily with women than from a specifically feminist perspective.
